CLEVELAND (AP) - The Browns have agreed to a one-year contract with free-agent wide receiver Nate Burleson.
A 12-year pro, Burleson has made 103 career starts. He finished last season with 39 catches for 461 yards for Detroit but missed half the year after breaking his arm in a car accident when he tried to stop a pizza from sliding off the passenger seat.
He spent four seasons with the Lions, who released him in February.
Burleson gives the Browns experience and depth at receiver. He'll also be able to mentor young wideout Josh Gordon, an emerging star who led the league in yards receiving last season.
Burleson, who visited the Browns on Saturday, is the second free agent receiver signed by the club. Cleveland added Andrew Hawkins last month, swiping him from the rival Cincinnati Bengals.
